Separation Anxiety

I just found out that starting Saturday I'm going to be without the internet for 10 days while we switch providers. I know you're as horrified as I am. So I decided to make a list of ways to help us get through this separation from each other.

1. At different times during the day, I will type such things as--In need of a Junior Mint fix. Where is my secret stash? OR @candicekenningt you're so funny. Of course I'd pick my children if forced to choose between them and American Idol--Then I'll pretend like you guys are actually reading them on twitter.

2. Throughout the day, think to yourself, 'If Kasie were here, what would she say?' I will, in turn, ask myself the same question about each of you. Most of the things you guys will be saying in my mind, by the way, are: "Yes, of course, you should have another cookie." OR "No, cleaning is totally overrated."

3. If you smack your elbow, stub your toe, or fall over a parking curb, feel free to say, "I just pulled a Kasie."

4. I've decided that during this time apart we should have a song to remember each other by. Then whenever we hear the song, we will think of each other. How about, The Script's "Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)"? A little too dramatic for the situation? I don't think so. Not all the lyrics are accurate, but they work. :)

If we follow these simple steps I think we will make it through the next week and a half without too much trauma. Don't forget about me while I'm gone. :)
